We have made the decision to not run Arise Conference in 2023.
As you know, we are continuing a process of consolidation, strengthening and change, which means that we need to carefully consider where energy, attention, resources and finances go this year. Whilst we are so thankful to God for what He has done in conference environments in previous years, we acknowledge that this comes at a cost in energy and focus for both staff and volunteers in the church, and historically it has come at a financial cost to the church as well. This decision hasn't been taken lightly and campus pastors and leadership team believe it is the best option for 2023.
We still believe and know there is great power in setting aside unique time and space to encounter God outside of our usual church services and we have seen the impact of this for our young people at Arise Youth Summer Camp this year. We are praying about and considering ways that we can have similar encounter environments for our whole church family in the months and years ahead.
In light of that, we will keep you updated about future Arise events around the country! If you had already registered for Arise Conference 2023, you have three options:
Please let us know which option you would prefer by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday 2 June 2023. Thank you for your continued faith, prayer, encouragement and understanding. Together we are building a healthy church that will bring glory to our great God and be a place of worship, prayer, discipleship and growth for many people.
Ben & Amy Kendrew.
